The Timberwolves were all set to way overpay for Rudy Gay when his current team the Memphis Grizzlies stepped in and gave the good, not great, Gay a max deal of $81 million over 5 years.
The Wolves quickly scooped up Darko Milicic to a $20 million 4-year deal. Darko played well in 30 games for Minnesota, but giving him that much guaranteed coin is risky.
Darko does not enjoy being motivated or working particularly hard, so giving him that much money is dubious.
As I, and many others thought, the Wolves $20-mil plus in cap space is going to lead to absolutely squat.
I just hope they don’t bring Isaiah Rider and Felton Spencer back in a last act of desperation.
